Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar
21mm extension tube
55mm extension tube
Rollei Retro 400S
This post is intended to be a simple answer to a friends question.
When using an extension tube does it matter if the lens is set to it’s minimum focus distance or set to infinity?
Yes it does, very much so.
The lens will lose the ability of focusing at the infinity but it does not lose the ability to focus at different distances depending on the distance set on the lens, changing the “magnification” given by the tube.
These are very simple examples and I will write another post about the Rollei Retro 400s.
This first shot was taken with the Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar at the miminum focusing distance which is 0.8m. The height of that little statue is 20cm. (Sorry for the light leak, I will get back to it on another post)
